York Police Hunt for Gorilla Masked Robber

York Region police are still working to identify a Vaughan bank robber sporting a Gorilla mask.

On June 15th, 2018,  police were called to a bank at Bathurst and Steeles, for an armed robbery at about 1:10p in the afternoon.

Police say a male suspect entered the bank wearing a gorilla mask and brandishing a handgun.

He obtained a quantity of cash and exited the bank on foot.

No one was hurt, but police say they’ve exhausted all leads and have released images hoping anyone with information will give them a call
